A Message From Ms. Loy, Principal

May 2016

Dear Hacienda families,

This year has certainly flown by in a blink of the eye! The month of April was
 jam packed with Going Native, Spring Break, and Spring Fling, not to mention state testing and other events in each classroom. Thank you to all of the many volunteers who made this our best Spring Fling yet! I am always amazed at the amount of time and effort it takes to coordinate any of the wonderful events at Hacienda. The funds raised from our Spring Fling will go a long way to support our students and the programs at Hacienda, so I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all who participated!

May always reminds us that we are nearing the end of the year, but never more so than this year. We literally have only 2 and 1⁄2 days after the Memorial Day holiday before school is out. Yikes!

Before that, though, there are oodles of activities and events that are looming large. May 23rd is our volunteer tea after school, where the staff is able to show appreciation to all of our fabulous parent volunteers. In true Hacienda style, Mr. Hayes has written a special ditty for the staff to perform in honor of those attending.

As we speak, our 5th graders are 
at Science Camp, up in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains. May 17th is a trifecta event, with Open House, Art Night, and Book Fair all rolled into one. Then we have our Kids in Motion and Field Day combined to take place on May 27th. Along with the many field trips taking place this month, and wrapping up with the Memorial Day holiday, this may go down as the busiest May in the record books.

Here’s to the last wonderful weeks of 2015-2016, and to a wonderful summer!

Warm regards,

Carmen Loy
Hacienda Principal
